I *could* but I'd have to either think about setting it up before the projections or need a good reason to run 'em again so I can save that.

Why do people answer 'yes' to a multiple choice question?
Dan Szymborski

Yes

What're your expectations for Jose Berrios this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:39
I remain constantly optimistic.

How do you feel that about 25% of hopper questions in your chats are about pro wrestling? Feature, not bug?
Dan Szymborski
2:40
A little confused
Stankel

G Polanco over Cutch, Cespedes, J Upton, Matt Kemp?
Dan Szymborski
2:40
Are we talking fantasy or real baseball?
Fantasy, it's hard to get Polanco value.
Alex

Does Junior Lake win the MVP this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:41
I'm going to have to say no.

More lamentable: Your decision not to answer political questions or my decision to ask one?
Dan Szymborski
2:41
Yours.

Do you think we see Jose Bautista at 1B more this season? I mean, Smoak isn't very good, and Bautista has had arm trouble in the past. I just want to see someone run into him and have his stare them down.
Dan Szymborski
2:41
Maybe a *little* but probably not regularly.
Matt
2:41
What are the odds Tanaka *doesn't* opt out? (Assume full health this season)
Dan Szymborski
2:41
I suspect he opts out, though it may depend on who *really* ends up hitting FA
2:42
If Arietta/Darvish re-sign before the season ends, he's got a bit more incentive to opt out
RAGS
2:42
Will Waino ever be a thing again or is he cooked?
Dan Szymborski
2:42
I'm worried
Matt

Did you hear about the accident between a truck full of strawberries and a truck full of sugar on the highway? It caused a jam....
Dan Szymborski
2:42
Banned.
Matt

Thanks Dan. Travis made fun of me for calling McCullers Lance in the Pants.

Skeptical is more a mahogany tone for me.

What's the history of relief pitchers' performances the year they come back from Tommy John? How risky is it to expect Capps to pick up where he left off?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
Pitchers really do have pretty good long-term outlooks from TJ, both starters and relievers.
Matt
2:43
Chasen Shreve - big league pitcher, or euphemism for hitting the bars to try to get laid?
Jerj Clooners
2:43
Was Cistulli too busy napping to set up the chat yesterday?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
More likely eating babies.
Hank
2:44
Best current pitcher in the AL?
Dan Szymborski
2:44
Sale

Over under on number of green beers you drink today? Same with pounds of stereotypical Irish foods? Basically, come midnight, will you be more corned beef than man?

Should I be concerned that Kiermaier has a bucket of k's this spring after improving those rates last season?
Dan Szymborski
2:44
Not yet.
PD

Is there anything more un-American than Meals on Wheels?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
Meals on Light Rail?
G Money
2:45
will Travis Wood's projection be updated to reflect the likelihood that he'll start a few games this season?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
Probably not.
